Russia Uses Ukraine’s Azovstal POWs in Demented New Propaganda Plot
Handout via ReutersAfter weeks of setbacks in Vladimir Putin’s “special military operation” in Ukraine, the Kremlin has now seized on a chance to use prisoners of war as part of new propaganda efforts, while Ukrainian authorities warn many of them are actually being held in a “concentration camp.”Russia’s Defense Ministry on Thursday said a total of 1,730 Ukrainian soldiers from Mariupol’s decimated Azovstal steel plant had surrendered this week alone, with 771 fighters supposedly laying down their weapons over the past 24 hours. Ukrainian authorities have been reluctant to divulge too many details, warning that it could derail the “rescue operation,” but confirmed Tuesday that 53 severely wounded troops had been taken to a hospital in the occupied Donetsk region, and another 211 had been evacuated to the occupied village of Olenivka.Ukraine’s deputy defense minister cautioned against buying into Russian claims, however.Read more at The Daily Beast.

What the UFO Discussion Really Needs
This week, a House of Representatives subcommittee on intelligence and counterterrorism gathered to discuss unidentified aerial phenomena. This was, on one level, a very unusual event—the rare congressional hearing about UFOs, the first in more than 50 years. And yet it proceeded as many others do on Capitol Hill: dryly, politely, and uneventfully. Which seemed odd. Shouldn’t there have been a little more to it? You know, alien stuff?The hearing featured more than an hour of congressional probing of two very important people, the undersecretary of defense for intelligence and security and the deputy director of naval intelligence, before moving to a closed, classified setting. There was footage of mysterious objects moving around in the sky. Yet a comment on a livestream summed up the whole affair quite nicely: “Well, this all seems rather anticlimactic,” the viewer wrote. “Are they trying to make it boring?”The witnesses did mention aliens—but only to say that American military officials had found no proof of them in the 400 modern-day reports of UFO sightings that they currently have on the books, from military pilots and some civilians. This week’s hearing was not about disclosing, once and for all, incontrovertible visual evidence of extraterrestrial craft whizzing through Earth’s atmosphere. It was meant to check in on the progress of a task force that the Department of Defense formed in 2020 “to detect, analyze and catalog UAPs”—unidentified aerial phenomena—“that could potentially pose a threat to U.S. national security.”And yet, when we hear something like the first congressional hearing on UFOs in half a century, we, the viewers, might expect more. Representative Adam Schiff, a member of the intelligence subcommittee, called the hearing’s subject “one of the world’s most enduring mysteries”—at least give us a new and spooky clue, then! If casual observers have outsize expectations for an event like this, it’s because they’re being exposed to it without any real context.And this story desperately needs context. Without it, we can miss important details, believe information when we should be skeptical, and see things that aren’t really there.[Read: Just don’t call them UFOs]There’s no way around the fact that, in popular usage, the term UFO—unidentified flying object—is synonymous with alien spaceships and has been for decades. The assumption that UFOs could represent something truly otherworldly is right there in the language that people use to scrutinize alleged footage; they “debunk” initial sightings, suggesting that, before close examination, they could be the real deal. (The government has tried to tiptoe away from the grabbiest version of UFO discourse, preferring to use the term UAP instead, which somehow sounds even more mysterious.)But the reality is that unidentified flying objects, or unidentified aerial phenomena, are just that, and there’s no reason to assume, right away, that they’re something all that interesting. In the same way that astronomers must run through a checklist of possible explanations for a strange new phenomenon in space before considering the extraterrestrial option, aviation experts have a number of more mundane culprits at their disposal: drones, experimental aircraft, weather events, birds, balloons—even the planet Venus, appearing extra bright and ethereal through the haze of our planet’s atmosphere. The alternatives to aliens are certainly more boring, but the alternatives are out there, and they always have been. The report at the center of the previous UFO hearing, in the late 1960s, found that the lights observed over a military base were birds and weather conditions.Indeed, the mysterious objects in one of the videos shown at this week’s hearing, glowing triangles in the night sky, turned out to be the result of an artifact of the camera equipment that captured the footage. Most of the reports that have been brought to the Pentagon task force remain unexplained, but Ronald Moultrie, the undersecretary of defense for intelligence and security, said that doesn’t mean that the answer must be something extraordinary. “We have insufficient data either on the event itself [or] the object itself,” Moultrie said at this week’s hearing. “So it’s a data issue that we’re facing.”[Read: If aliens are out there, they’re way out there]The next point of context, often missing, is why anyone is talking about aliens at all in the year 2022. The latest spike in UFO interest began in 2017, when The New York Times published a story headlined “Glowing Auras and ‘Black Money’: The Pentagon’s Mysterious UFO Program,” about a shadowy government effort to catalog UAPs, along with two Navy videos featuring UAPs. But the breathlessness of the coverage in the past few years hasn’t matched the breadth of the evidence for an extraterrestrial explanation, of which there isn’t much. (One of those videos would later go on to be explained away by an independent video analyst, and eventually, by Pentagon officials.) Plenty of outlets followed the Times’ lead, letting the thrill of writing about UFOs with a big wink overtake their normal sense of propriety. “Reporters have taken sources at their word without corroborating data, let documented contradictions slide by, and glossed over the motivations of both outside agitators and government insiders,” Sarah Scoles, a science journalist and the author of They Are Already Here: UFO Culture and Why We See Saucers, wrote in The Atlantic last year. “If these stories did not outright say the word aliens, many indulged in what-if-ing, while glazing over the limits of the actual facts available.”Many of the stories, Scoles said, took certain people’s credentials—say, the former director of the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program—as face-value evidence that their claims about the extraterrestrial origins of UFOs were true. Similarly, part of the reason that the astrophysicist Avi Loeb receives so much coverage for his alien-tinged discussion of weird-shaped interstellar objects is because he is a tenured Harvard professor. So when people see a UFO story in The New York Times, they’re inclined to trust the paper. But these articles appear without much-needed context: The Times’ go-to reporters on the UFO beat, who broke the story on the Pentagon’s previously undisclosed program, are long-time UFO activists who have advocated for the idea that such objects might have extraterrestrial explanations.People might read the latest news that the government has 400 reports of UFOs and imagine a recent explosion in sightings. After all, when the Pentagon and UFOs made headlines last summer, defense officials said they were taking a look at just 144 reports! Context matters here too. The increase is because the Defense Department solicited reports from service members in a more deliberate way, and vowed, at least publicly, to take their accounts seriously. Unexplainable things in the sky are indeed matters of national security; an unrecognizable technology could belong to an adversarial nation. Expect the Pentagon to report higher numbers, but understand why those numbers are higher. “The implication will be, ‘Oh my God, they were hiding something. I knew it!’ as if that means ‘These things are aliens’ as opposed to ‘The military is secretive, and now you know it was secretive,’” Jason Wright, an astronomer at Penn State University who works in the field of SETI, the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, told me in an interview last year.Whenever I see a news story or TV interview about UFOs that cries out for more context, I think of Edward Ruppelt, an Air Force officer who worked on one of the Pentagon’s earliest efforts to understand strange, fast-moving stuff in the sky. Ruppelt came up with the term UFO in the early 1950s. In 1956, Ruppelt wrote a book-length report on UFOs. No one asked him to do it, but he was frustrated with the “secrecy and confusion” and wanted the public to have all the facts. He ended the document on a hopeful note. “I wouldn’t want to hazard a guess as to what the final outcome of the UFO investigation will be, but I am sure that within a few years there will be a proven answer.” Within a few years! Sorry, Ruppelt.

Why must we pay to have a slightly less miserable time at the airport?
Travelers wait in a long queue at the security checkpoint of Orlando International Airport the day before the Thanksgiving holiday on November 24, 2021. | Paul Hennessy/SOPA Images/LightRocket via Getty Images TSA PreCheck, Clear, and how the airport splits travelers into haves and have-nots. As a general rule, the airport is not fun. And this summer, as people prepare to get back out there and airline travel nears pre-pandemic levels, it could be even more of a mess. You can make the ordeal a little less miserable and a little bit quicker if you’re willing to pay for it. Even then, you might not be successful. Of all the tasks one undertakes during air travel, navigating the security line is among the worst. It is a simultaneously mundane and stressful undertaking; The waiting is deeply boring, and the thought something might go awry and you’ll miss your flight is deeply annoying. Luckily! You have options to try to cut down on time, jump to the front of the line, or go to a different line altogether. Unluckily! Those options are going to cost you. You may very well decide those costlier options are worth it, especially if you travel a lot. (I have TSA PreCheck, which I’ll talk about later, and I greatly enjoy it.) But that you’re inclined to pay at all points to a bigger issue: Across the economy, there are all sorts of ways for certain people to pay to skip the line, dividing consumers in a vaguely dehumanizing way. The consumer experience has become so bad that letting people try to pay to get around it is a viable business model. At the airport, travelers are split into microgroups of haves and have-nots based on what they’re willing to fork over, not only in the security line but also at the gate and where they sit on the plane. Instead of letting some people pay to get ahead, wouldn’t it be better if the whole ordeal were just improved for everyone? At the airport, travelers are split into microgroups of haves and have-nots based on what they’re willing to fork over Having to wait a little bit longer at the airport isn’t the end of the world, but the situation is far from ideal. According to one analysis of the country’s biggest airports, depending on the time of day and the day of the week, security wait times can stretch well over 30 minutes at peak times at airports such as Newark, Miami International, and Boston Logan. Not fun, indeed. The stratification of the security line There are many ways you can pay to jump the line at the airport. As the Washington Post explains, you can pay hundreds of dollars to book concierge services that escort you around. But I’m going to focus on a pair of more common (and domestic) options:TSA PreCheck and Clear, both of which let you move a little faster, albeit in different ways. TSA PreCheck, launched in 2013, is an expedited screening program. You stand in a separate line and get to avoid some of the most annoying parts of dealing with the regular screening — for instance, you get to keep your shoes on and don’t have to take your laptop out of your bag. (Why anyone still has to take their shoes off at all in the security line is a question for another day.) It costs $85 to apply and, once you’re approved, it lasts for five years. At $17 a year, that’s not a bad deal. Clear is a private company that verifies identity using biometrics. It’s not available everywhere yet — it’s in about 40 airports — but it’s growing. How it works is members go to a kiosk to get their eyes, fingers, or faces scanned, and once that happens, a Clear “ambassador” escorts them to the front of the TSA line. It costs $179 a year, so compared to PreCheck it’s quite a bit pricier. “There’s no question that Clear kind of stratifies the security line based on means and how often you’re traveling” Zach Griff, who covers the travel industry for The Points Guy, recommends getting both Clear and PreCheck for the fastest experience in the airport line. He also acknowledges it’s expensive, coming in at about $200 a year total. To people who can’t or don’t want to pay, it’s also not super fair. “There’s no question that Clear kind of stratifies the security line based on means and how often you’re traveling,” he said. Delta and United Airlines have made investments in Clear; it’s a way for them to give some of their customers a better experience. American Airlines, thus far, has eschewed working with the company. “They’ve repeatedly said that they’d rather invest in services and technologies that are easily accessible to more people,” Griff said. Both services can be nice for people who have them, but they are a Band-Aid for a bigger problem, which is long security lines and a chronically underfunded, understaffed TSA. The first iteration of Clear went into bankruptcy, in part because TSA was able to cut down line wait times, explained Michael Restovich, senior adviser at global security firm Command Consulting Group and former assistant administrator of security operations at TSA. Clear also divides travelers in a way that can feel a little gross. If you haven’t bought the service and you’ve been at an airport where Clear is in business, you may have noticed a member cutting in front of you in the security line. Or maybe a Clear ambassador has approached you while you wait frustrated in the regular line, trying to see if your current level of desperation will serve as a selling point. Maybe you think that everyone could move faster if the regular and TSA PreCheck lines were just evenly distributed, or that everybody, TSA PreCheck and not, might be fine keeping on their belts. Not a huge deal, but bothersome. The situation isn’t always ideal for the people paying. Because Clear isn’t available everywhere, passengers sometimes still wind up waiting in a bit of a line. “There might be two or three people that are waiting to put their bag on the belt to go through, you don’t necessarily go in front of them,” said Ken Lisaius, vice president of public affairs and communications at Clear. He also noted that Clear offers a free service to reserve a time at the security line in some airports. The more people get PreCheck, the less advantageous it becomes as those lines get just as long as the regular ones. Moreover, just because you pay for PreCheck doesn’t mean you’ll always get it. Sometimes you get put into the normal line anyway for security reasons because TSA doesn’t want people getting expedited screening every time. In other words, people with TSA PreCheck aren’t always promised the benefits they’re signing up for. “It’s a shame that they charge $85,” Restovich said. “I think probably if people were willing to submit their application online, it ought to be for nothing. It ought to be if you are cleared.” “A lot of passengers, I think, get confused thinking that if you’re buying through the problem you’re always going to be TSA PreCheck, and that’s not true,” said Maxel Shabay Izquierdo, a vice president at TSA Council 100, which represents TSA officers. “We like the actual algorithm of unpredictability.” In other words, part of TSA’s approach to security is that passengers don’t exactly know what measures they will and won’t face when they’re at the airport. But then again, people often find things big and small to get upset about at the airport. “Something’s always going to tick them off,” Izquierdo said. He also pointed out there’s a reason people are recommended to go to the airport early. “There could be lines. Lines are inevitable.” That being said, the conversation around why someone might want TSA PreCheck or Clear is a nuanced one, and it doesn’t always have to do with speed. Praveen, a 26-year-old law student whose last name has been withheld to protect his privacy, says he believes PreCheck has helped him avoid some risk of racial profiling. “I grew up in a post-9/11 world, so I always tried to mitigate my presence at airports. Let me try to get through this with the least amount of trouble,” he said. TSA Precheck “just expedited the process and gave less time for an issue to occur.” He says before paying for PreCheck in 2019, he got stopped almost every time he went to the airport. You can pay your way to the front of the line because the line sucks Price discrimination, where companies charge customers differently for pretty similar goods or services, is hardly a new phenomenon. It’s not limited to travel, though flying can feel particularly bad and opaque. Businesses charge more all the time to give you the same things faster. Ride-hail companies give you an option to get picked up quicker if you pay a little extra. E-commerce companies will deliver your packages faster, for a price. Sometimes, the pay-to-accelerate stuff is just a nuisance, like at a ski resort or a convenience store. Other times, it’s discriminatory and disturbing, like rich people getting quicker access to Covid-19 vaccines or being sent to the front of the phone queue when trying to get in touch with the IRS. Companies have also gotten very good at extracting money from people in exchange for something modestly better Time is a valuable commodity, and the economy has become so unequal and the consumer experience so deteriorated that people who can pay to save it do. One 2021 survey found that more than half of consumers are willing to pay for faster deliveries. According to 2018 research from PwC, customers say they were willing to pay up to a 16 percent premium for better service. In dealing with businesses and with the government, having less money — or being less willing to spend it — translates to a time suck. The people who can pay to skip the line or get the faster service do, and everyone else is forced to compete with what feels like a dwindling pool of resources. The consumer isn’t really the villain here. It’s understandable — if you have the means — to want to pay to get to the front of the line if you can. Companies have also gotten very good at extracting money from people in exchange for something modestly better, or something that’s the same but faster. In places like the airport, this is on full display. “The airlines have done a fantastic job of extracting revenue from conveniences. That is their business model whether we like it or not,” Griff said. Would it be better if things were more equal and people didn’t feel tempted to spend for speed? Yes. In the meantime, most of us are stuck in the regular security line, looking over at the Clear people and wondering whether that $179 a year for a retina scan would be worth it after all.
